Founded in 2001 by David E. Anderson, DVM, MS, Diplomate ACVS, at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in the United States, the International Camelid Institute (ICI) promotes education, service and collaboration among researchers, breeders, owners, fiber and textile industry professionals and animal enthusiasts worldwide. As an information repository, veterinarians, owners, academicians, regulatory agencies and others can access and obtain essential information for everyday situations from research. ICI strives to acknowledge research being conducted throughout the world and seeks to help avoid duplication of efforts. ICI does not solicit research funds nor does it administer grants. ICI seeks to share and exchange information and therefore is not exclusionary to any researchers. The Institute serves as an educational conduit to fulfill its mission of improving animal health and well being.
